Another activity I like to do with literature is read different versions of story such as:
Students compare the different versions and then write their own version. I used these stories with my More Fun with Jack and the Beanstalk packet.
Students practice measuring different pictures from Jack and Beanstalk to the nearest quarter inch.
I also have a 3 Little Pigs unit that studies different versions of the same story line.
Here are some different versions of fairy tales. The book, Little Bad Wolf, is a free kindle download for a short time.
